Anne Lowery was born and raised in Warren, Ohio. She worked as a police officer for almost fifteen years before returning to her alma mater, Kent State University, to earn a Masters Degree and change careers to become a reference librarian. She worked at the Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County and the Henderson Memorial Library in Jefferson, Ohio before being named Director of the New London Public Library in 2008.

She is an accomplished musician and die-hard Cleveland Indians fan. Anne is a life-long student of American history, particularly the Civil War and does genealogy and historical research “for fun.” Anne Lowery is the author of Rumor Has It.

According to the book description of Rumor Has It, “1974, Washington DC was abuzz with Watergate and the boxing world was abuzz with news of the second fight between Frazier and Ali. But in a small town hanging in central Ohio, mid way between Cleveland and Toledo, the talk of the town was not Watergate or Ali. It was water and blood. And the current underneath? Good old fashioned gossip.

In Anne Lowery’s new book, Rumor Has It, politics, murder, and gossip intertwine like threads in a quilt, weaving a story blending fact and fiction which even the newspapers couldn’t quite keep straight.
